Family Life Center operates a 24/7 helpline providing immediate crisis intervention services which are available to all primary and secondary victims of sexual violence or domestic violence in Flagler County.
Family Life Center recognizes that taking legal action against an abuser is an important step in keeping survivors safe. Obtaining an attorney, however, can have a huge financial burden. The Injunction for Protection Project (IFP) at Family Life Center eliminates barriers to secure legal protection against an abuser.

Primary prevention for domestic violence is aimed at attempting to reduce the likelihood of violence from occurring before an instance ever takes place, which is what we are trying to do in Flagler County. The Youth Advocate at Family Life Center goes to local schools and organizations that work with youth to teach them about healthy relationships, bullying, dating violence, and other topics that relate to domestic violence.
Signs of a Healthy Relationship Include:
To raise awareness in Flagler County the Youth Advocate organizes a Community Action Team and meets quarterly with them to brainstorm ideas and discuss things happening in the community. A Community Action Team is a group of individuals united in the cause of non-violence and promoting healthy relationships through public campaigns to effect social change and community responsibility.
Anyone can join the Community Action Team. For more information call: (386) 437-7747.
